Fixed fee options and a 6 month payment deferment period is available.

The right expert

It can be difficult to be sure that clinics and individuals offering cosmetic surgery are true experts in the field. Some providers use the term “Cosmetic Practitioner” without any specific training. Miss O’Brien has wide-ranging experience and training in all aspects of plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Her specialist registration with the General Medical Council is in Plastic Surgery. She is widely published in her field including her book Plastic & Hand Surgery - Classifications and Definitions in Clinical Practice. She has been involved for some years in research and teaching at a national level.

This has included travel across Europe and as far as New Zealand to speak at international surgical conferences.

Present appointments

Miss O’Brien now works at the Royal Derby Hospital, spending time in both the internationally renowned Pulvertaft Hand Centre and as Clinical Lead for the new Royal Derby Cosmetic Surgery Service. She has a weekly clinic at Loughborough Hospital, where she often advises and treats high level competitive athletes. She is also available for consultations at the Nuffield Hospital in Derby.

She has recently been featured on BBC Radio Derby with Aleena Naylor and has been interviewed by BBC East Midlands Today and Capital FM as Clinical Lead for the Royal Derby Cosmetic Surgery Service.

She is also available for consultations at the Nuffield Hospital in Derby and Spire Little Aston Hospital in Sutton Coldfield.
